SMC has added to its gripper range with the launch of the MHM-X6400, which uses a magnet for the handling of steel plate, without the need for vacuum. Suitable for workpieces with uneven or irregular surfaces or featuring holes, this magnetic gripper is designed to provide reliable and safe handling at reduced cycle times for improved productivity. It is also useful for many sheet metal handling applications including robotic systems.

In developing the MHM-X6400, SMC has looked to improve its handling flexibility by using magnetic grippers where vacuum was never an option due to the inherent limitations of a vacuum system. With a holding force of up to 120 N, the MHM-X6400 continues to hold a workpiece even when air supply is lost completely or pressure drops are experienced. Furthermore, with a residual holding force of 0.3 N or less, cycle times are reduced and productivity output is improved.

Suitable for a range of transfer applications, the holding force of the MHM-X6400 can be adjusted by simply changing the height of the of bumper being used. Made from Fluororubber, the bumper also prevents the workpiece from slipping and damaging during operations, improving safety.

The MHM-X6400 also features three mountable surfaces and the option to mount auto switches.
